    Might be better to leave trash mountain as it is, the israelis may fancy it and claim it for security reasons. Then they will start wailing up against some wall and you know the rest….

      Nice that the ‘Artist’s Misconception’ (or, what I call ‘Developer’s Dreams’) plants a Lebanese Flag on the top of Mt. Sidon.

    It could have trees on top … but it still leaks from the bottom and kills fish that swim too close.
    In 50 years, they will plant houses on the slippery slope to the Med, with ‘The View To Pay For’…. Engineers are ‘smart-enough’ to figure anything out for profit. 😉

      At Zgharta they’ve been plowing the garbage into the olive groves … only forgot to remove the tin cans and plastics first. Cardboard dissolves eventually. Shots from before ASSad’s war …. This must be the ‘Agriculture University’ … it benefits from Tripoli Trash I think …. Olives are a Hardy species … Only Israeli’s can kill them. :-)))))
      (after this, I contemplated the number of olives the hotel served up for breakfast …and cut back)
      (wonder if the university still has windows …. hmmmm … I’m not going back to look)
